About 225 girls and adults will spend the day learning about Egypt. The girls will enjoy activities in geography, language, dance, crafts and food tasting.

Troop Leader Ellen Birkenthal tells me that local troops are planning on attending the "Rock the Mall" event in Washington, D.C., this summer in celebration of the 100th anniversary.
